Who goes to dinner wearing a costume? Rihanna, that’s who.
The singer, who’s been out and about in Boston lately, dined on Halloween with her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel at chef Dante de Magistris’s restaurant Dante at the Royal Sonesta Wednesday — and she was dressed as “Star Wars” character Kylo Ren. Jameel, the handsome Saudi businessman who’s been squiring the “Stay” singer around since this summer, was dressed as a penguin.
We’re told the costumed couple ate heartily and canoodled throughout the meal. Before leaving, Rihanna ordered extra pasta to take with her because, she said, she often gets hungry around 2 a.m.
It’s the second time in recent days that Rihanna and Jameel have eaten at Dante. It’s not clear why the couple is in town, though the charitable arm of the company run by Jameel’s family has a relationship with MIT, so it’s possible he’s in town on business.
The couple sampled the bruschetta, calamari, grilled octopus, bolognese, tomato basil pasta, and gnocchi with sausage and broccoli rabe.

On the road, people typically have to eat all or most of their meals at restaurants or hotels. On cruise ships and international flights, and at all-inclusive resorts, they’re practically held captive. When you’ve got dietary restrictions, that can make things difficult.Continue reading »
